Not many schools publish their own magazines. Those which do so render yeoman service to their students. A school magazine is generally run by students under the express guidance of their teachers.
A school magazine is a Pandora box of many benefits and useful purposes. It provides opportunities to students to show the light of day to their write-ups. Many students have many ideas in their mind. They want some exposure to express them out. A school magazine gives them that platform from where they can open up their mind. Students contribute articles to the magazine. Ideas may not be original but they are expressed in novel ways by the students. So a magazine sharpens the thinking power of the students. Students discover their potentialities and become great writers later on.
A school magazine keeps all the students, whether on rolls or ex students, well aware about various activities going on in the school. There remains a link between the past and the present. Ex students keep a living touch with the institution that moulded their personalities.
A school magazine carries experienced views of the teachers. They put forward various situations and their practical solutions. This helps the students to get prepared for the life they are to enter in. Valuable suggestions by the teachers counsel the students what to do and what not to do. A school magazine helps in forming healthy public opinions in school.
A school magazine inculcates the habit of reading in the students. This habit stands them in good stead to prepare themselves nicely for the examinations. Moreover, a school magazine provides healthy reading material.
Many sound issues are discussed in the magazine. This keeps the students well linked with the society in general and incorporates in them the sense of social responsibility.
A school magazine serves many purposes.
